  • LaunchCmd


    VBScript   → Lua


    This function calls (launches) a given command, i.e. launches any given application.

    Please see the Introduction chapter for some usage instructions.


    ' LaunchCmd
    ' Calls/launches the given command
    ' Parameter:
    '   sCommand            command to be called
    ' Return:
    '   none
    Function LaunchCmd( sCommand )
        PBXScript.OutputTrace "------> LaunchCmd ( " & sCommand & " )"
        On Error Resume Next
        Dim objShell
        Set objShell = CreateObject("WScript.Shell")
        objShell.Run sCommand
        If Err <> 0 Then
            PBXScript.OutputTrace "Error executing the given command! (" & Hex(Err) & ")"
            PBXScript.OutputTrace Err.Description
            PBXScript.OutputTrace "Given Command successfuly executed"
        End If
        Set  objShell = Nothing
        PBXScript.OutputTrace "<----- LaunchCmd"
    End Function


    Please note that this command will be launched on the SwyxServer machine. No windows will be opened, and no user input can be made. So only start command line applications which do not require and user input.


    This function makes use of the Server Script API function PBXScript.OutputTrace to write trace information into the SwyxServer trace file.


    This function was initially posted into this forum topic.
